senate. i expect them to hold hearings. i expect there to be a vote." but republicans remain dug in - insisting the next president should name scalia's replacement. the president today pointed out there is precedent for the senate confirming a justice during a president's final year in office. president reagans nominee, anthony kennedy was confirmed in february 1988. but kennedy's case is an unusual one. the vacancy came the previous year - in july 1987 when justice lewis powell resigned. reagan first nominated robert bork, who the senate rejected after a long, bitter debate. reagan then nominated the less-controversial kennedy in november 1987. the senate confirmed him three months later - 97 to 0. democrats say with 11 months left in obama's presidency, there's plenty of time to confirm a justice. that was jonathan karl reporting. president obama was asked if people should assume he'd nominate a moderate to replace scalia. the president said we
